Are you ready for your close up? Many of us dread getting in front of the camera. But with a few simple tips, you can put your best foot (face) forward.

Just because you love that photo of yourself from 15 years ago, doesn’t mean it’s the right photo to use in your current professional career. Your headshot should look like you today, so when people meet you in person for the first time, they will recognize you.

It’s a good idea to confirm the various ways the photo may be used in the future. While it often may appear cropped close to your face, many websites, marketing materials, advertisements and even third-party media outlets might prefer to use a full-body or three-quarter/head-and-torso shot. If so, you’ll want to plan your full outfit (down to your toes) accordingly.

Here’s a one-pager with a few tips to help you prepare for your photo session.
